The beer pours a nice dark garnet almost brown witha lovelly thick inch high creamy off white head..that stayed quite some time Nice aroma..chocolaty and spicy tones..though well done. I dunno but this seems to taste better than when I had the rest of the six pack..its flavourful yet smoother and less aggresivesweet malts followed by a creamy chocolaty taste followed by a nice "zap" of hops at the end ..very nice. Nice and smooth and creamy on the palate. Pretty drinkable even for a hot sweaty night

Very dark pour with lighter brown edges. Big head and nice lace. Mostly sweet malts in the aroma, not too big of a nose, slight hops. Roast malts in the flavor, some fruit and finished off with a bit of bittering hops. Not too bad of a ESA.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Poured a nice warm brown color with a whispy tan head. Strong bitter smell. Spicy assault that opens up into a bitter body. Very nice.

Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2003
bottle-2003-Ruby red appearance. Big roasty malt aroma-light smoke detected. Licorice, smoke, chocolate and alcohol in the flavor. lots of pine needles on the toungue. long finish-very long. Medium carbonation. Earthy/piney finish of hops. Quite an excellent brew-nice and complex-good work Full Sail!! thanks Buck_Dich for this one!!

A decent brew that had too much of a sour aftertaste. But it is a good balance of hops and malts.

xsketchyx (184) - Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2004 Nice and spicy, big-time hops. After a rerate, this is better than I remembered it.

DiamondD (38) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2003
2003 12oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown with a perfect tan head. Very little aroma. You can detect a subtle sherry, dried fruit in there but it is sublte. Medium to full bodied. I think the winter/ christmas seasonals are my favorite style. This one is not bad at all. It has a bit of a dryness that I like. You'll definitely get bit of warming in the belly.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2003
2002-Nice clean amber brew. Aromas of hops and light spice. Nice mouthfeel with malt countering the hops and spice nicely.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2003
Aroma has a slight tang with caramelly malt essence, but decidedly on the light side...Color a pretty dark mahogany with a soft tan head and sticky patch lace---most attractive...Flavor is a smooth blend of sweet roasty malts, clean dry hoppiness and subtle spiciness that punctuates the finish...This is medium-bodied and well-balanced---lively mouthfeel...Overall, this is an all-around quality product. I wish the flavors were a little bit richer, but the balance and basic character are admirable.
